Yeah, it's definitely sad. Had a lot of talent. RIP.

I can't believe it either. It's always the funny guys that end up having the depression. Wether you liked him or not everyone knew who Robin was. I am one of those guys who likes movies with twists, CGI and splattered full of testosterone. None of that matters because all his movies had a place on my shelf. I don't care what anyone says the guy was in a league of his own. I know he suffered with depression and drug addiction from news reels but never thought it was real. You never believe the crap you see on stars or ET. I guess he really did need a friend. He was on my list of guys to see in person....

I didn't know him at all obviously, the legend he was, I'll be thinking about him for the next little while. One of my good friends killed himself by hanging this summer, left a four year old girl... God this irks me... I wish I would have answered the phone that night instead of assuming he was drunk and being stupid....

Dammit..... Dam....

I'm going to get Worlds Greatest Dad and give it a watch, something I've had sitting on the shelf for a while.

Omg what a shock, had no idea til I read this. he will be greatly missed. I don't think I've seen a bad film with him in it and I love Mork and Mindy as a child.

Juamnji is one of my Daughters favourite films, I've been trying to explain depression and addiction to her lately as a very close family member has a big problem with it (they are still in the denial stage) so this is worrying to her and it kind of breaks my heart to not be able to tell her everything is ok as I dint know it will be.

Mike thank you for sharing your story, I'm sure that will haunt you but don't don't blame yourself, I've been avoiding calls and ignoring the door from the person I mentioned above for the very same reasons, thinking they are just drunk and annoying, but I'll be sure to answer now as one day that call could be the call for help.

My heart goes out to robins family, it must have been so difficult to support him during his addictions and other issues and having it all play out it public must be awful. I so hope the press keave them alone to grieve in private.

I think I'm the only person I know who actually disliked him and never found his movies good. I'm actually pretty surprised at the reaction everywhere he's much more popular than I thought.

On another note it's pretty spooky someone on IGN basically called this on Friday.

I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out
